    I have personally witnessed people with PD use meditation or Reiki to calm violent trimmers within seconds or minutes. We’ve seen and probably experienced music’s effect on movement and mood. Visual cues, a recent study of loud starling audio cues, virtual reality, etc. There are infinite methods for most of us to fuel movement.

    In this video, I’m using the power of place, the power of a cause, the power of human connection, and the power of paradoxical kinesia, a fancy term for difficult to explain movement in PD. How much more is possible when we use all at our disposal?

    We can be certain that thoughts and actions, especially when consistently reinforced, physically change us! Actions may sometimes be difficult, but only if you don’t enjoy it. Who among us doesn’t enjoy rediscovering fluidity?

    Only I can fully explore and discover my unique possibilities for movement or anything else, for that matter. Yet, that  privilege  is not unique to me whatsoever.

    Wow. This is a remarkable video, Gavin. Thanks for sharing! How did you did you figure out you could do this? How often can you do this? Do you have any resources you could share with our other members? Thanks again for posting this video.

    Thank you very much Ally! It was a little bit of a surprise to me too the first time I had such free movement seconds after being stiff as a board.

    I’m not sure I have a short answer for how it’s done, but it seems to be some combination of a few of the following: determination, inspirational place, inspirational cause, inspirational people,  perhaps spontaneously applying movement to a different neural pathway, perhaps internally sparking creation of dopamine, lots of mindful, intense exercise…

    I think it could be experimented with by almost anybody though. I’ve since been experimenting with more of this kind of movement with some  modest success. It’s not  ever-reliable. It is, however, really nice to have on occasion. Today on occasion, Eventually the norm?

    Our minds and emotions are more powerful than most of us understand.  Don’t let this disease steal your hope.  But do be active, creative, and relentless.

      Amazing. My hope is that you will continue to experience these miraculous bursts of movement! Thanks again for sharing. 🙂 Also, the charity you’re talking about in the video sounds very cool as well. Best of luck in the fundraising efforts.

    Thank you, Ally. I don’t at all discount the effect that the Waterboys cause had on my being able to transformer my state.
